We are off on our first festival holiday as a foursome next week and although we are excited its a little daunting too. Having to pack everything we need for everyone. Then having to think about food too..
There is a pretty amazing food line up at this years Camp Bestival so we will definitely be partaking of those delights some of the time but I’m on maternity leave so I do actually have to be a little thrifty for the most part.
Which means we will be cooking a lot of our meals in the festival fields.
Now Camp Bestival has a great set up in all of their standard, glamping and campervan fields with designated cooking areas and washing up areas but not every campsite or festival will have that.
A pop up or collapsible wash bowl is really handy:
Cooking in the outdoors especially with children and tents around can be dangerous so I’m loving the idea of this Flameless cookbox from e-outdoor.co.uk
It uses a water activated heat pack and is even safe to use INSIDE your tent. Brilliant huh?
Our first two years at Camp Bestival we used a traditional camping stove and made meals such as frittata and omelettes along with the usual camping staples of bacon, beans and sausages.
We normally take a flask to fill up with boiling water in the morning and use throughout the day if we want a cup of tea.
And we always take a small milk pan to make hot chocolates to have just before bed:
I will be writing a post this weekend about all the meals we plan to cook at Camp Bestival and also the ways in which we will be cooking it so look out for that.
What are your campsite specials? Are there any meals you always make when at festivals?
